My sister in law has a lot of Lavender flowers at her house, and these bumblebees are all over them. I waited until almost sundown to get a shot of a lethargic bee, and it only gave me time for four frames. Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F14, 1/200 0, ISO 200) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (~ 4x) + a diffused MT-24EX. As always this is a single, un-cropped frame, taken hand held.

Great detail in the mandibles, which look slightly more complex than those of a honey bee, although still adapted for moulding wax.

Looks really nice to me... light looks great... I find bees like this very hard to get good light using a flash, your diffusers are working well.

Thanks Phil, Harold, and Daryl

The eyes on bumblebees are tough to expose due to their shape -gonna hit them from a bad angle almost no matter how you shot them.
